Ende Gelände – Here and no further?

EG_Plakat2017_1

Our message today is – again – Enough! Whether it is RWE or any other company, we do not want any more fossil fuels! Join us again in an inspiring action of massive civil disobedience. From the 24th to the 29th of August there will be actions and camps taking place throughout the Rhineland.

Ende Gelände is an announced mass action of civil disobedience that allows different levels of participation (blockade of infrastructure, protest, communication, helping in the kitchen, etc.).

It is an action open to everyone (whether you have experience with civil disobedience or not) within a well thought-out framework with a clear action consensus (link to action consensus). This consensus or action agreement has been approved by all parties of the organisation and participants and supporters of Ende Gelände.

Why an action of civil disobedience?
The previous energy transitions have occurred over a period of time of 50 years, in a context of growth. We do not have this amount of time, and we now know that infinite growth is not possible on a finite planet. For way too long already, politicians have been bending to the wishes of the large energy industry.
Time is running out! If we do not leave fossil fuels in the ground, we are heading towards a climate catastrophe! Our actions are disobedient – but they are also legitimate: it’s time to put our disobedient bodies on the line!

Why mobilize in Germany?
The climate crisis we live today is global. So even though the extraction of coal is no longer common in Belgium, we want to strengthen the local struggles in neighbouring countries by joining forces.

Who are we?
350Belgium is mobilizing together with Climate Express. Both are volunteer organizations. Vredesactie, JOC and ADES-if are organizing action-trainings.
